A resident species in serious decline, generally occurring singly or sparingly, but occasionally fairly common on the Downs and vegetated shingle beaches. Now restricted in distribution to three zones and very local in numbers. Single-brooded, flying mainly from mid-September to late October. Larvae feed on common mallow and musk mallow. (Pratt, 2011)
